While we'll agree that Orcs & Elves could definitely use some better graphics, as well as maybe a more intuitive control scheme as far as controlling your character's movement goes (not the spell casting, that certainly looks fun enough), but that doesn't mean we're just going to write the game off.
1UP recently got their hands on the game and found it to be oddly engaging. They obviously share our sentiment that the game lacks a fine touch in the graphics department, but feel the rest of the title they were lucky enough to get their hands on was actually pretty good. We're happy to hear that, to be honest.

I've never heard of Orcs and Elves until it was announced for the DS. However, I like what I've seen of it so far. It looks interesting for what it is. Not to mention it's highly reminiscent of the old days of gaming. If it turns out well, I might pick this up.

Spellcasting looks just like Deep Labyrinth's - it should work a lot better in O&E though, considering that it's turn-based instead of real-time like DL was.

You may not just write the game off, but I think I might. Cell phone games made into DS games with little additional work...I'll pass on that.

Looks a bit crude graphically, but it reminds me of the old PC first-person RPG's. I might just be interested.
